This piece was created using my hand-dyed fabric with some from Gone Away Quilting, and some commercial fabrics...plus what seemed like a million different threads. It's a fairly simple piece, but as my friend Jenny put it, misleadingly so. It's all about the place on your journey where you know the road you're on is going to end and you have to make a choice. If you've ever been there you know there's usually nothing simple about that.
And the other good news? Well, today I found out that BOTH pieces I submitted to Associated Artists show "Exposures" were accepted! This show was judged by Cameron Dennis and Terri Dowell-Dennis and works must incorporate at least one photograph or photographic image. It opens this Thursday and runs through March 27. The two pieces I submitted are "Guest In My Garden"...a tribute to the Monarch caterpillars I raise, and "Lessons Learned"...a tribute to my grandparents who taught me two of the most important lessons in life - 'when one door closes, another one opens', and 'get back on the horse again'.
Both pieces are mounted on painted canvases. (Lessons Learned got cropped a bit too much...luckily these two were juried from actual pieces, not photographs!)
Now if y'all will excuse me, I'm going to go turn some cartwheels...
